Millions of readers have come to value the Conversations with God series by Neale Donald Walsch, which has now been translated into twenty-six languages. Many thousands of those readers have had questions for him--questions about religion, good and evil, physical and mental health, death, prophecy, the nature of God and the universe, prayer, angels and devils, spiritual paths, relationships, and much more. In Questions and Answers on Conversations with God, Neale, with characteristic wit and wisdom, responds to the most compelling and provocative of these letters; and the result is a book that is profoundly enlightening and inspiring. By relating the messages in the dialogues of CWG to the personal issues and everyday experience of individuals, Neale's answers illustrate the direct link between spiritual and physical reality, clearly demonstrating how what we do and who we are in our lives is a result of how we think and what we believe. This book gives us all the opportunity to look at ourselves, to change ourselves, and thus, perhaps, to change the world.

What's So Funny About Faith

Do you ever feel as if your passion for pop culture and faith might be at odds? Do you ever wonder how your desire to be a part of present-day culture and your longing to grow spiritually can be reconciled? Thirty-something Jake Martin, a professional comedian who also just happens to be a Jesuit, believes that contemporary culture and spirituality do go hand in hand and that our faith can grow through the medium of humor and laughter. What’s So Funny about Faith? is Martin’s wry, heartfelt memoir detailing his attempts to successfully navigate a world steeped in irony while staying true to his calling to love and serve God. Martin explores the oftentimes complicated relationship between faith and humor as he examines the contemporary landscape of humor in film, television, and the Internet while communicating timeless truths about the redemptive value of humor. Martin’s humorous anecdotes span his relatively young life—from growing up on the South Side of Chicago to becoming a stand-up comedian to joining the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits). Whether he’s reminiscing about his female-dominated, Irish-Catholic family (he affectionately recalls the howls of laughter when more than one woman would convene) or recollecting his movie-inspired greeting to the Jesuits (“You know how the priests in The Exorcist were Jesuits?”), Martin continually validates not only the role humor played in developing his spiritual life, but the role it can play in developing ours as well.

Redeeming How We Talk

Discover why words matter in a noisy world Technology has made it easier than ever before to share just about everything: pictures, ideas, even the ups and downs of your morning errand run. Yet all our talking doesn’t seem to be connecting us the way it promised to. That’s because we don’t need to talk more, we need to talk better. Redeeming How We Talk explores what the Bible has to say about that central aspect of life and relationships—conversation. The Scriptures show us that words have remarkable power—to create, to bless, to encourage, to forgive. Imagine how we, as Christians, could spark change in our families, churches, and communities if we learned to use words like Jesus did. By weaving together theology, history, and philosophy, Ken Wytsma and A. J. Swoboda help us reclaim the holiness of human speech and the relevance of meaningful conversation in our culture today.

Spiritually Loose

Your divine life is as individual as your fingerprints: your spiritual path is unique. Spirituality isn’t always found in organised religion, temples, or gurus. It doesn’t need to be outsourced. Your divine life lies within, all you need to do is listen to your inner voice! Spiritually Loose shows how one woman replaced soul-destroying expectations and obligations with connection, meaning and possibilities. Susan’s journey included raves in Ibiza, jazz bars in New York; lectures on quantum physics in Italy, philosophy classes in Australia; traditional hula dancing in Hawaii and qualifying as a Kundalini yoga teacher in Spain. Instead of finding answers, she found rules. Instead of joy, she found judgement. However, once she began looking inward, she tuned into her inner voice of love, acceptance, and joy. Tuning into your inner voice is an antidote for emptiness, regret and disappointment. It’s a powerful reminder that it’s ok to be spiritual and loose, humble and confident, reverent and cheeky, patient and intolerant, brave and vulnerable, deep and superficial all at once. Above all, it’s a reminder that it’s perfect just to be you.
